Intro:  
Am  Em  Am  Em  


VERSE 1: 
    Am                         G          Am  
Way up in the mountains on the high timberline  
          G           Dm              G            Am 
there's a twisted old tree called the bristle cone pine  
    F               Am         G            Am      
the wind there it's bitter and cut's like a knife 
    G               Dm     G           Am    Em  Am   
And keeps that tree holdin on for dear life 
 
 
VERSE 2: 

  Am             G             Am
Hold on it does stand in it's ground  
   G          Dm      G            Am
Standing as empires rise and fall down
       F        Am        G            Am 
When Jesus was gathering lambs to his fold
     G          Dm       G             Am    Em   Am  
The tree was already a thousand years old 
 
 
CHORUS 1: 

        F          C                G         C         
Now the way I have lived there aint no way to tell  
     F            C        G 
when I die if I'm goin' to heaven or hell 
        F           C          G             Am  
so when I'm laid to rest it'll suite me just fine  
    F                         G          Am 
to sleep at the feet of the Bristlecone Pine 
 
 
VERSE 3: 

Am               G                     Am
And as I would slowly return to this earth 
         G       Dm       G            Am
What little this body of mine might be worth 
       F              Am        G            Am 
It'd soon start to nourish the roots of that tree 
     G               Dm          G        Am    Em   Am 
And it would par - take of the essence of me 
 

VERSE 4:
     Am           G                     Am 
And who knows but that as the century's turn 
    G            Dm           G        Am
A small spark in me might continue to burn 
    F           Am         G          Am
As long as the sun does continue to shine 
G            Dm           G           Am    Em   Am 
Down on the limbs of the Bristlecone Pine 
 
CHORUS 2: 
        F          C               G         C   
By the way I have lived there aint no way to tell 
        F          C        G 
When I die if I'm goin to heaven or hell 
          F         C          G        Am  
But I'd just soon serve out eternity's time  
   F                         G          Am 
Asleep at the feet of the Bristlecone Pine 


 
REPEAT CHORUS 2
